It’s an Indonesian meatball. It’s pronunciation from Hokkien 肉酥 ie. Bah-so͘, then its Indonesian name Bakso, with a silent “k”This popular street food dish is very popular in Malang, Indonesia 🇮🇩 & is said to be Chinese in origin.

Ohh ya…Depending on the type of meatballs used, it might be called Bakso Ayam (Chicken meatballs), Bakso sapi (Beef meatballs) or Bakso babi (Pork meatballs) etc.When served with noodles & broth, the dish is bakso noodles

Personally SiennyLovesDrawing prefers to enjoy just the chewy bakso of any meat with sweet sauce & a little spicy sambal. Alternatively, she will enjoy a bakso noodles bowl at times 🍜 Read more via 🌐 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakso

Batagor

It’s an abbreviation from Ba for Bakso (meatballs), Ta for Tahu (ie. Tofu), Gor for goreng (Deep-fried) ~ A popular street food in Bandung, Sunda region of West Java, Indonesia 🇮🇩 Also said to be an adaptation of the Chinese Indonesian “Siu Mai”. Tofu & wonton skins are usually stuffed with fish or meat paste & then steamed & coat with batter & deep-fried, then served with spicy sweet peanut 🥜 sauce

It’s truly yummy addictive to enjoy all with the peanut sauce dipping 😋👍🏻 Read more via 🌐 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batagor

Lumpia

It’s 1️⃣ of the various types of spring rolls commonly found in Indonesia 🇮🇩 , also Philippine 🇵🇭. Lumpia are made of thin paper-like or crepe-like pastry skin with enveloping savory or sweet fillings

It’s often served as an appetizer or snack & might be served deep fried or fresh

SiennyLovesDrawing tried the one with beef & vegetables in it from this fiesta & it’s crispy juicy to enjoy 😋👍🏻 Read more via 🌐 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lumpia

Telur Gulung (Egg rolls)

It’s a variation of fried egg where an egg 🥚 is fried & then rolled using a skewer which is usually made from bamboo wood or stick 🦯

As the egg 🥚 (Whisk egg) is cooking, quickly use the ‘satay stick’ & spin the stick around so that it collects the egg around the stick

The cooked & fried rolled egg on stick, will be placed on a cup 🥡 ready to be served along with the sauces

Come on, come on… SiennyLovesDrawing really enjoyed herself here with a sip a drink & enjoy its special local foods here
